There is no duty 32 SMITH on either the purchaser or the vendor to a contract for the sale of land to disclose to the other party material facts of which he or she is aware and which materially affect the value of the subject matter of the sale (Terrene Ltd.

The contractor led evidence that the cracks could be filled with sealant and repainting and the aesthetic appearance of the façade restored for a few thousand dollars. The judge held that the owner was not entitled to a new façade, given the limited aesthetic nature of the defect, the time that had elapsed and the fact that the owner had negotiated the 36 SMITH price and a standard of work which did not amount to a ‘Rolls Royce’ level of finish in the façade.
